Kris Commons: There has always been talk of the treble at Celtic

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons says the club have been under pressure to win the treble ever since he joined the club.

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons has told the Glasgow Evening Times that ever since he joined the club, there has been talk of winning the treble.

The Bhoys went close under manager Ronny Deila this season, but fell just short and they will be in a good position to go for all three main domestic trophies again next season.

“I am in my fifth season here and ever since I walked in the door there has been talk of us winning a Treble, and that is something we are desperate to do. It is going to be high on our agenda,” said Commons.

Celtic are without doubt the biggest club in Scotland so it’s no surprise that level of pressure and expectation is linked to the club each and every season.

It’s important that Deila and the squad learn from the lessons of this season and move forward to become a stronger unit for next year.

They couldn’t do anything about the infamous handball during the Scottish Cup semi-final against Inverness, it was just a piece of bad luck and had they been awarded that penalty and scored it then things may have turned out differently.

However, there’s no point dwelling on the past and Deila has to focus on what’s within his control and how he can get more out of the Bhoys over the summer.

Players will come, players will go, the manager will invent some new tactical systems, but the one thing that will stay the same is the strength Celtic have collectively as a club as they hunt treble success, which their Norwegian manager will hunger for.
